The church was built here in 1145, along with a hospital and a cemetery. When the cemetery filled up with dead bodies, and there was nowhere else to put them, a small side chapel was constructed to house the bones. The church is nice enough, with a baroque paintings in its chapels. Check out the altars dedicated to Maria Magdalene and Saint Rosalia.,But no one really looks at them. The ossuary, dome painted with 17th century frescoes by Sebastiano Ricci, and otherwise completely covered in in bones and skulls, is all anyone wants to see. Fewer sights in the city are more deliciously morbid.

Church Of Bones, Milan Reviews - Write a Review

  • Other than to say entry is free and it seems comparatively quiet, this church isn't well served by a text review - check out the photos! Then do a little research to uncover some of the other somewhat macabre practices associated with this church.

  • Definitely make time to see this amazing chapel. They have a history in English printed out for visitors.

  • Creepy and beautiful at the same time. Good also to enjoy fresh air and silence if visiting Milan in a crowded day of summer. The bones chapel is a true hidden treasure few minutes walking from the Milan mainstream attractions.

  • Really interesting place to visit when in Milan. Morbidly fascinating, it will make you sigh and shiver at the same time and turn you into an unconventional traveller.

  • This is the hidden gem of Milan. It has a chapel made out of bones (from people that died in the hospital). It's free to enter and definitely beats the one in Czech Republic. Donate some money to help the church though.
